Kristoffer Dyrkorn – Beating the traffic jam using NoSQL
Most people have experienced the boredom of being stuck in traffic. Up-to-date and credible information about congestions and detours could save us time and frustration in our everyday lives.The Norwegian Public Roads Administration is now building a new infrastructure for road traffic measurements, and the system will provide high-quality, near-realtime information as publicly available open data. The project relies heavily on NoSQL technology (Elasticsearch) for high-performance data gathering and statistical analysis.This talk will give a walkthrough of the project and the solution and show how NoSQL has helped in building an application that meets demanding requirements. Several use cases that illustrate the value of the system, both for the general public and for private companies and public institutions, will be given.
